It is another Music Friday and some great introduction maybe artists you never heard of but might like. Some of them are fresh and new, while some have been making music for years. I hope you like the selection of this month and will at least hear their music. Not saying to much but I think there might be a surprise in there for you. At least one of them blew my mind away with a voice that moves you. So let us go on with
Music Friday: December Surprise.
First up is a Dutch singer, songwriter Douwe Bob. I would say he has an Americano, country style to his songs and even got me how does not enjoy Country as much, tapping my feet. That is saying something. Maybe it is the familiarity of old times and the warm homey feeling they are giving you. This is but a small introduction from an artists coming from a tiny country but making it big with his voice. The song he is bringing you is called “Multicoloured angels”.
More info on the wiki page I already translated for you, here.
Second let me introduce you with an upcoming artist and vocalist that seriously rocks a world. At the age of 24 from south London this guy, in my opinion is magician with the music melodies he uses. His real name is Kwabena Adjepong but you can find him under his artist name Kwabs. The song I chose is his latest called “Walk” and has that electric dance and R&B sound to it. Give him a try you won’t be disappointed.
Find more info on him at the wiki page, here.
The list is not complete without some rock or grunge. It is my favourite and just love hearing those guitars howl. Tremble a little at this band formed from the old school days. The Deaf has the same guitarist as the band Di-rect. Both these groups come from The Hague, a town that brings forth many rock groups. The sound is eclectic and now I should not promote drugs but damn how I would love to be high on this. Now surely this isn’t for everyone but give it a try. They only recently after 3 years finally launched their second album.
For information I will send you to their Facebook page as not much is out there.
Almost at the end and it is an oldie, a band from the Netherlands who have been making music for a long time, that would be since 1997. With their alternative rock they have been touring and maybe got a little lost in the shadow of big names like Coldplay. They still created great music alike but making name isn’t always easy. So here I am giving you a change to listen to some great music from an relatively unknown band. The song is Called “Brock by brick” and is a song that was published in November this year. Easy listening, light a fire have a glass of wine and it will all come together.

Or their official page here. It is in Dutch.
Last and most certainly not least a young lady who’s voice completely blew me over. To think I missed her when she made her debut album three years ago. It is scary how her soul like voice has so much power en depth. Coming close to a voice well known she is one we need to keep an eye on. From another small country and our southern neighbours she is from Belgian decent. With the age of 25 she might have a great career ahead of her. Their is not much to tell you other then listen and get ready to be swept away with her song, “This world” and a live version of “Alone”. Lets hope her second album will come quick.

Best wishes and surely hope you enjoyed today’s music.
